Shared memory between tasks

Whenever possible, avoid sharing memory between tasks. Shared memory is often overused, and subsystems using shared memory might not work on secure versions of the Taligent Application Environment or on loosely coupled multiprocessors.

If you have to share memory between tasks, avoid client-writable memory because this greatly compromises the system's reliability. Instead, modify your shared memory from a server, and give clients read-only access. At Taligent, an architect approves all client-writable shared memory.
